Sorry but Microsoft says that it is possible and there is a ppc (Power PC) folder in the NT CD for that !

If it is anything like Alpha you cannot boot from the CD. You must use the console that the Alpha boots into and then run the CD. Never used/saw a Power PC so if it is not like an Alpha about is incorrect.

sorry, there is no "console" in the boot sequence of a powerPC ... it looks like a BIOS on a "normal" PC but i can't manage to start the installation...

I know for fact that you could run NT on Virtual PC on the Mac.
Or if you have thin client server(like Citrix) and you install ICA Client on your Mac, you can run NT.

nope, it is an IBM, but this article shows that it is possible that the information or disks needed to install it in my RS6000 IBM PowerPC could be provided by IBM. (like motorola boot disks needed in the article...) I'll ask about it...
Thank you...
